A group of concerned residents launched a campaign to stop a millage proposal from passing that would have funded Jamestown Township’s Patmos Library.
The millage was voted on during the primary election on Tuesday, Aug. 2 and failed to pass by a rather large margin.
Voters cast 1,905 votes against the millage and 1,142 for the millage, which resulted in it being defeated.
The group that opposed the millage did so because of books that were part of a Pride display during the month of June. Among those books on display was “Gender Queer: A Memoir,” a graphic novel about explaining what it means to be nonbinary and asexual.
